Upcoming Posts!

And the hits just keep on coming!

Last week I received two poems, “Redemption Rain" and "Earthquake 2010" from Jennifer Rahim, author of Approaching Sabbaths, winner of a Casa de las Américas Prize 2010. Both poems are from her manuscript, REDEMPTION RAIN.

Continuing the pattern begun by Pam Mordecai, the title poem of Jennifer's collection, “Redemption Rain,” will be published on Friday, August 27, 2010. The second poem, "Earthquake 2010,”  a meditation on the tragedy in Haiti, will be published in  on September 3, 2010.

On Wednesday, August 25, 2010, I will be publishing an excerpt from Octavio Roca’s Cuban Ballet, which according to the publisher, Gibbs Smith, “explores the history of Cuban ballet starting with the life and career of the indomitable Alicia Alonso, founder of the Ballet Nacional de Cuba.”

I've been in contact with several Caribbean writers who will be reading at the Miami Book Fair International and several have pledged to write guest posts for the In My Own Words series.

Speaking about the MBFI, I hope to be able to write a post about Michael Hettich's  most recent collection of poems, Like Happiness. Michael Hettich will be reading at Books & Books on October 15, 2010.

Finally, give thanks to all who participated in the Marcus Garvey poll. 84% of you agreed that Marcus would have been a blogger. I would even venture to conclude, as Colin Grant did, that he would have been a master of social media. Marcus Garvey on Twitter. I like that!

I’ll be rolling out even more good news over the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
